Episode 131 – Maria Matarelli – Workaholism

Maria Matarelli (@MariaMatarelli on twitter) returns to talk workaholism with host Craig Price. Craig’s hesitation to participate in the new martyrdom of “being busy” is explored as Maria defines hard work vs. workaholism. The two talk about how working too long, too often can destroy relationships, cause health problems and in some extreme instances, increased income (we told you Craig isn’t 100% on board).  They show that working smarter is always preferred over working harder. Maria’s book “Workaholic? A 12-Step Guide to Having a Life and Getting Things Done” is a great start on the road to recovery. Consider this podcast an intervention for those who just can’t relax and must fill their lives with work.

Whether you’re a new front-line leader, a small business owner, or a veteran manager, The Seven Things Your Team Needs to Hear You Say will inspire you to inspire your team.

Are You Afraid of Fear?

  I have always appreciated fear.   Fear does many things: It motivates, it keeps things in check, it stops you from doing stupid things, and it can show that you care.   Yet, most people see fear (especially when seen in others) as weakness. This is not accurate; fear is a natural response for …
